CORREIA, Diva; ROSA, Morsyleide de Freitas; NOROES, Elis Regina de Vasconcelos  and  ARAUJO, Fátima Beatriz de. The use of coir dust for preparation of substrates for grafted dwarf cashew seedlings. Rev. Bras. Frutic. [online]. 2003, vol.25, n.3, pp.557-558. ISSN 0100-2945.

The aim of this work was to evaluate the use of mature and immature coir dust for preparation of substrates for grafted dwarf cashew seedlings. The trial was carried out at Embrapa Agroindústria Tropical, in Fortaleza city, Ceará State. Root-stocks were obtained from seeds of CCP06 and vegetative shoots were obtained from adult plants of CCP76, both dwarf cashew clones. Results revealed that coir dust either from mature or immature fruit was suitable for seedlings growth, being able to replace the low humid glei soil at 20%. Both substrates showed great facility to remove the seedlings from liner pots as well as good root aggregation to substrates.
